Try On (and Sale) Reports: Alpine Pullover, Balance Baselayer, and Balance Pullover
I tried on the Alpine Pullover today and I agree with the reviews I have read that it runs snug in the chest, shoulders, and upper arms. If you are larger chested you might want to size up in this top. The Haze pullover I tried was pulling in the front. It is not nearly as roomy as the Dash Pullover. If you are looking for this top, the El Segundo store had a ton in Black and Haze. I wonder if there will be another technical fleece pullover released this season. Last year there were two- the Spirit in early October and the Run Racer Pullover at the end of December.
I also saw the Scuba-illow. The back zipper is that harsh metal zipper (with a big pull!) Lululemon has been using lately. I HATE that zipper. My Remix Lights have a metal zipper and they are much smoother - I can run my fingers along it and not have them catch and get scratched. Please use those metal zippers. Anyway, the back zipper is just plain ugly and adds nothing to the design of the jacket. The whole pillow idea is so dumb. However, I will say I really like the heathered charcoal color, though. It's quite nice and even has a bit of texture but I'm not a fan of the Hamburglar striped hood. The Haze scuba is very pretty, too. I won't get it because it's too light a color and I like to be able to set my jacket down without freaking out about a little dirt.
The El Segundo store had a nice little markdown rack going - they had a couple of Everywhere Bags marked down to $59 (in teal), they had a lot of Rock Out pants on markdown - I think to $79, they had a few Still pants at $69 (the Coal with the Heathered Coal Wee Stripe Waistband), some running shorts (I think the speed shorts and I want to say they were $39), a bunch of Tadasana jackets (I think at $79), some reverse groove shorts for $34, some tall Grooves for $79, a couple of Swiftly tees and Swiftly racerbacks.Oh yeah, I forgot to write they had a bunch of Inspire crops on markdown (at least in the upper sizes), I think $79 or $69 in colors like oasis and lolo.
